I hear that with the 1.3 patch this can cause problems, but you have two options. You can either download the "All factions" mod or manually edit descr_strat.txt.

Find the file "...\Rome - Total War\Data\world\maps\campaign\imperial_campaign\descr_strat.txt". Make a backup copy (IMPORTANT!) then open it.

You'll see something like this this:

Quote:


playable
romans_julii
romans_brutii
romans_scipii
end

unlockable
egypt
seleucid
carthage
parthia
gauls
germans
britons
greek_cities
end

nonplayable
romans_senate
macedon
pontus
armenia
dacia
scythia
spain
thrace
numidia
slave
end

All you need to do is change it into this:

Quote:

playable
romans_julii
romans_brutii
romans_scipii
egypt
seleucid
carthage
parthia
gauls
germans
greek_cities
slave
macedon
pontus
armenia
dacia
scythia
spain
thrace
numidia
britons

end

unlockable
end

nonplayable
romans_senate
end



Note: one faction needs to stay unplayable. I decide it should be the senate because if you play them opening the senate tab crashes the game.

In order to not cause a CTD when you select a non-playble faction you'll need to make a faction description. That is the 1.3 trouble.

I could play them just fine with 1.2, if you have 1.3 they'll proboably need a description (thanks a lot to lars753 for pointing this out).

The faction description file is in the text folder. Which IIRC is in the data folder.

Ok thanks Lars, but where are the faction descriptions (I assume it's just a copy paste form another faction and then rename it...)
